I saw this on Instagram and I just had to share the message! Navigating life in the modern world requires a lot of self discipline. It’s hard to remain true to yourself and your goals when there’s so much external noise telling you who you should be. It’s so easy to fall into the trap of comparing ourselves to others. And then there’s the challenge of dealing with internal pressure and overcoming that critical inner voice that can sabotage and undermine us.
That’s all incredibly amplified on social media. The instant gratification, the illusion of perfection, the unattainable goals. That’s so damaging to our self love. So remember to take time to look into yourself and focus on your own goals. Turn off your phone every once in a while and set yourself free from all that unnecessary pressure. Don’t let that be the foundation of your happiness. You’re too busy becoming who you are.
